Lamborghini’s 50th anniversary special Egoista Concept is a single seater powerhouse
Lamborghini is celebrating it’s 50th birthday in every fancy way possible. Just recently, they teamed up with Car Shoe Company, and dished out the limited edition Mocassin series shoes. Earlier the Lamborghini Veneno got sold out despite a $3.9 million price tag. Now it is the turn of the concept car called Egoista, which is a single seater masterpiece from the Italian carmaker. Built for some of the world’s wealthiest collectors, this vehicle will be ideally suited for anyone who wishes to enjoy a speed thrill in style but in a solo mode, sans any luggage and co passenger. With the unique coloring scheme, the ever imposing style factor also doesn’t see a compromise anywhere. The inspiration of this unique Lamborghini is from an Apache helicopter, so one would ideally sitting in a cockpit, than just a driver’s seat.
The first things that one can see on a car like this one, is the abstract color scheme. The matt steel gray has been contrasted with the strong orange lining, which is seen on the wheel cover, the air vents and the front bumper spots too. Not to mention, that the electronically controlled glass canopy on the driver’s cockpit, is also of the similar shade.
On the interior, the seating and partly the side lining, also carries the bright orange shade. Other than that, the cockpit is made from carbon fiber and aluminum as offers several detachable components which make it easy for the driver to come in and exit the vehicle after a ride.
Coming to the main feature of a Lamborghini, which is their engine, the Egoista vehicle has been fitted with a 5.2-liter V-10 engine which comes dishes out 600 HP of output. However, the figures about touching the 100 kmph speed barrier from start, and the top speed haven’t been revealed as yet but their numbers have been mind boggling in the past, and it could be expected to the same this time around. What will now finally see this car on road, is whether some of the geeky collector will accept the Walter De Silva (head of design, Volkswagen Group) created design, and will pay top money to buy it. Perhaps this will be on the lines of the Aventador J Aural Assault model.
